Oakwood Farmers' Market and Roundhay Environmental Action Project (REAP) News

July 2019 Oakwood Farmers’ Market

This Saturday 20th July, 9-12:30pm
at Oakwood Clock come and experience the joy of good food, coffee, grocery shopping
and the great Farmers Market community spirit.

the road closures round the Oakwood Clock area due to the Ed Sheeran Concerts leave the market committee no option but to cancel the 17th August market. Apologies to all our regular supporters.

Thank you to Vicky Whiteley and her mother, 'the Lettuce Ladies'
who have supported the market since the beginning. Vicky has had to give up the market due to ill health. But we hope she may be able to rejoin us as a guest stall in the future.

The music this month will be provided by
Roundhay Ukulele Group
